The innovative Morpheus 8 micro-needling treatment packs a powerful punch and treats multiple issues not seen with other treatments on the market today. The device uses high radio frequency to transmit an electric current deep into the skin, to kickstart collagen production, which firms and tightens the area or areas being treated. It is also able to improve skin tone, texture, scarring, excessive sweating, and vaginal issues. The needles are finer and go deeper into the skin which promotes more collagen production and ultimately a better result. Morpheus 8 is great for anyone who wants to combat skin issues either preventative or corrective. For those who want to avoid the expense and severity of a surgical procedure. Morpheus 8 is a wonderful option because it is far less expensive, requires little to no downtime, and no scarring. Maximum results do take several months because collagen production happens over time.

Dr. Hadi will apply a topical numbing agent to the area. You will relax for about 45 minutes while this takes effect. Once the anesthesia is achieved, the Morpheus 8 treatments begins in a very tailored pattern by applying the device over the desired areas of treatment. With each pass, you will feel tiny little pin pricking while the energy is being delivered to the subdermal area. Depending on the level of skin tightening desired, a second or third pass over that area will be performed. Once the treatment is completed, a cooling agent such as Aquaphor ® is applied to help soothe the skin.
